The Applicant may develop plans to register domain names that exclusively contain geographic names and proposes the following measures for protection of these geographic names at the second and other levels in the applied-for gTLD.
Given the fact that the Applicant is a leading insurer licensed and operating in various states throughout the United States, it has a vested interest in giving visitors to the applied-for gTLD (e.g. policyholders, exclusive and independent agents, employees) a clear and predictable naming scheme in the applied-for gTLD. Because visitors may be looking for services offered by the Applicant on the basis of geographic location, the Applicant may indeed develop plans in order to register domain names that exclusively contain geographic names (country names, city names, names of regions, etc.).
However, if such domain names will be registered, the Applicant will do so considering the following confines:
(i) these domain names will be exclusively registered in the name of the Applicant ⁄ Registry Operator or its subsidiaries or affiliates, and not in the name of a third party that is not controlled by the Applicant ⁄ Registry Operator, unless agreed upon otherwise with the authority competent for giving its consent in accordance with Specification 5 of the Registry Agreement;
(ii) where consents are required prior to the registration and use of a domain name referred to and in accordance with Specification 5 of the Registry Agreement, the Applicant will obtain such consents before actually registering, delegating and using these domain names.
In any case the registration, delegation and use of domain names corresponding to geographic names will at all times be done:
- in the best interest of the Applicant; and
- in order to directly and indirectly promote local commercial activity in the geographic locations of which the name has been registered in accordance with (i) above.
